We say, we should greatly reduce the taxes on all tobacco products, thus allowing the company to make more profit while charging consumers less. People want to smoke, it's government selfishness, to make the bulk of Americans, pay more for a pleasure most people seem to like.

We, also believe, tobacco companies should be able to advertise on radio & TV, and use cartoon charcters like "Joe Camel" as gimmicks again.
